Last week, when winter turned to summer, I took a hike with a dear friend on a nearby shaded forest trail surrounded with cool shallow streams. In Shutesbury, MA, near my home, there are lots of trails in the woods. It was good to be Under the Forest Canopy, connecting with my friend, getting some exercise amidst the beauty of the woods. We walked right by the spot I took this photograph. A nice memory. A sweet hike. Continue reading
Shutesbury photographer and organic cookbook author Leslie Cerier’s grandmother painted copies of Impressionist paintings by Monet, Degas, Renoir and Cezanne.
“Her apartment on the beach was decorated with her beautiful artwork,” Cerier says, “ and those paintings live inside of me.”
Like the Impressionists, Cerier says, she’s passionate about light, water and landscapes.

Red and Gold Leaves by Leslie Cerier. This is a fine art photograph print that looks like an impressionist painting.

Light. Water. Transformation.
When I take my camera into the woods, I feel my connection with the forest. It’s like meditating – a way to get back to my own true nature. The sun calls me to a particular spot and I click the shutter when I see that rich, afternoon light … dancing light. Most of these photographs are taken within walking distance of my Western Massachusetts home. They are a celebration of New England seen through the eye of my heart.

I see perfection in nature – patterns – artistic jewels that reveal themselves. Continue reading
